Crystal Coast Report

From Capt. Chris Kimrey:

"Hey man, Wahoo still chewing pretty good, few dolphin offshore. We had one sailfish last friday.
Ocean flounder showing up a touch early had a trip on Thurs caught some 16-20" flounder in 60-75" water out front.
Plenty of blues in the ocean and some gaint hatteras blues on the flats in the hook.
Had a nice school of Reds around Beaufort inlet Wend and thurs 16-23" fish and a couple of schools of old drum on shoals last week early.
Have not seen any Atlantic Bonito yet, but the albies have been around for several weeks.
Last of course are the sea mullets and they are showing up strong in front of shack with smaller fish in the turning basin."
Capt. Chris

I'll ad that the cobia are going to start popping up anytime.

Between the Roanoke River stripers, Capt. Gary and Joe with the specks/stripers in the Neuse and Capt. Chris, Joe and Charlie on the coast, spring fishing is getting underway in full swing.
Most of the guides calendars are getting very full, with only limited openings. Even forJune, many of us are already about 50% booked.

There is more availablity in July and early August, but Capt. Brian Harrington, Greg Voliva and myself have almost zero openings from mid-August through the end of September. All of the above and some other great guides like Capt. Dan Roberts, Capt. Justin Haddock and Capt. Gene Wooster will be helping with our overflow, If you want to get after the big drum with the guide who you have fished with in past years, you need to make your reservation NOW.

In Costa Rica, from May through August we have some great deals and discounts. But for the 2013 peak sesaon, the Dragin Fly is already 60% booked. Please don't wait too late to make your reservations for next year.
